    HELL YES

    It's worth 3-4x that

    Great speakers, vintage, Marshall badge, kinda rare --- definitely go for it


    The good 80's cabs have g12-80 or g12-65 speakers and are getting hard to find. This is one of the good ones.

    As long as the speakers are good, I'd grab that cab quickly.

    Great deal snag it!

    Marshall labeled G12-80's were T2876's and Clestion labeled G12-80's would be T3103's...exactly the same speakers and my favs!

    I've got a pair of g1280's ( 444 Mueller bass cones ) in a 1922 cab. dated 1979 from memory clear , tight and neutral is the best was to describe them , I like them a lot . A 1982 cab loaded with them at $ 275 is a no brainer .

    Thanks dudes. Sorry for my late response. I was driving to pick it up. I have it in my back seat now. All the speakers are a-ok. The only thing is the guy added a jack and wired it stereo. Easily undone. It has all 4 of the original casters on it yet too..sweet. And I did get it for $275.

    Great score , in pretty good condition aswell . Even ampmadscientist would have to agree that that cab will handle a 100 watt plexi flat out no problem .

    Yep, lead coned G12-80's with Kurt Mueller's...good job!

    But I didn't know the 1982's bass cabs had lead coned G12-80's, wonder if they were replaced at some point?

    Yea it's not too bad condition wise. Some tolex dings here and there but all and all pretty nice speakers are tight. He had a 50w jmp there we cranked into it. They sound good. So what is this actually worth? I see the casters alone going for silly money so I would think a little more than I paid.. I'm dealing on his jmp as well..

    So this is actually a bass cab?..it has the lead series badge, not the bass series badge. And is the gp7 stamp the date code? What year were these made I wonder? Educate me..

    Yeah, 1982's are typically for bass or not lead. But from all the images on the net, all I see are JCM800 1982A's with that lead badge. So IDK.

    July 7, 1981.
